Parenting Tips #16 The Routines, Structure, Boundaries & Limits We Set for Our Kids Help Our Teenagers

Everything I have discussed so far in the parenting tips blogs is to help create that structure we all need & to prepare us for when our kids become teenagers. Our kids are aware of everything we do & like us want to heard & respected. It is important that we lead by example which means we have to really Listen Without Reacting, Be Consistent & Express Our Feelings. That means we also have to maintain Routines, Structure, Boundaries & Limits! It is important to catch our kids doing good Praise them often & Tell Them We Love them even when we are angry, disappointed & frustrated with their behavior & attitude. Yes we do get attitude from our teens sometimes when they are younger. Our kids will be angry at us & we will be angry with them which is ok! Remember you will get through the teen years! It may not feel like it but you will!

Here is a great article summarizing what our teenagers need,
